The lodge was warm & heated… and had lots of food. The kitchen was stocked with water, chocolate, and other supplies (INCLUDING postcards & stamps – I sent one to my parents) .
All the supplies for the lodge are carried up by porters. As we were hiking up, we saw locals carrying HUGE loads strapped to their back and hanging from their heads…. as they passed us.
Up to this point, the sky has been foggy & drizzly. Just before sunset, the skies cleared for the first time.
